Watch Amandla Stenberg Break Down Things Black Girls Are Tired Of Hearing

Amandla Stenberg can just about do no wrong. Not only is she a great actress, but the 17-year-old also creates comic books, schools her fans about feminism and race, and is all around dope.

Recently, Stenberg covered the latest issue of Teen Vogue, taking over the mag’s Snapchat (where she came out as out as bisexual) and co-directing a slate of videos exploring what it means to be a young Black woman today.

While all the clips are worth checking out (watch them here), our favorite is one in which Stenberg teams up with Franchesca Ramsey, Netta, and the ladies of Urbanbushbabies to break down things Black girls are tired of hearing.

Take a look.

Can you relate?

    Great video filled with beautiful magical black women. And I agree with the topics that we are tired of hearing and explaining…trust we need to add more points to the list.

    I like this, I get the nose one a lot or you features don’t look black, well it turns out my Great Grandfather was a Marshmallow -_-. I thought the white would be a couple of generations back but no its pretty close. It’s a good video and I love the positive vibe and its filled with strong black magical women, giving needed information for those with sour milk complexion and other white masked POC’s.

    Excellent video. It is very important that the dignity of black women must always be honored. Amandla Stenberg and her friends magnificently shown the truth that black woman have the right to be who they are and not hear the same false, stereotypical rhetoric from folks who don’t know know a thing about black women (who are dynamic, inspirational, intelligent, and strong human beings). Black women are beautiful. We reject prejudice and bigotry. We believe in human justice and equality. Growing consciousness is a life long process. We grow as people and these Sisters have outlined great wisdom that anyone should respect.

    I saw a funny YouTube video from my favorite duo Tracy Clayton and Heben Negatu from Buzzfeed’s Another Round it was their Kwanza episode. There was a very funny segment in the show about having a black doll call Microagressions Molly. When whites said something offensive the doll would then tell them what they were saying was offensive. Or when a white person tried to put their hands in a sister’s natural hair they would get electrocuted. I was screaming like a banshee. I love Buzzfeed’s Another Round with Heben and Tracy.

    The video was great but white folks probably don’t pay attention and will continue with their fuckery.
